A-DP protest inside Holyoke LaborReady


Published 2002


Anti-Displacement Project invades Holyoke, Massachusetts temp-labor supplier LaborReady. LaborReady exploits vulnerable day laborers, takes money out of minimum wage checks for illegal check cashing fees and safety equipment and transportation charges, leaving workers making less than minimum wage for a variety of hard labor jobs.

LaborReady threatened legal action against A-DP, forcing them to close a website full of worker testimony against LaborReady and evidence of exploitation and unsafe working conditions: http://www.slaverready.com which was forced off the internet in fall 2002.

Part 2 is outside of LaborReady in Holyoke...
